This virus, which the Chinese is rapidly spreading, is still statistically insignificant. In Wuhan, the epicenter of the outbreak, only .00011% of the people are infected (add more zeros for the national perspective). Only .00029% are severe cases. And only .000003% have died. Math.

Also, a happy first day of the Year of the Rat to the Chinese! At least they get to rotate critters every year. For those who have been to Washington, we know the US has the rat every year.
